Join the CORK Team this summer!

Would you like to get involved and volunteer for an International event?

Since 1969 CORK / Sail Kingston has hosted world-class international sailing events.  Offering the best fresh-water sailing in the world with excellent wind and wave conditions, Kingston was the host sailing venue for the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics.  This summer over 1000 boats and 1500+ competitors will participate in a series of 2-8 day regattas (July through September).  Volunteering at CORK is fun and a great way to support the sport about which we are passionate!  Volunteer opportunities exist both on the water and ashore.

To help us with this important planning we are asking for all volunteers to sign up in CORK’s online volunteer registration system (CRMS)

 

First time volunteer?

Please register at the CORK web-site http://www.cork.org/members/sign_in.php

  • Language preference French or English (if you speak any additional languages you can add them to the comments section)
  • First year volunteered

We also invite you all to volunteer for one of the many events this summer!

Under the volunteer time tab click on the dates that you are available.  Keep in mind that all assignments are based on the details recorded in crms.   This is your opportunity to rank your interests 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.
